[ 0 ] October 6, 2011

Bolivia is one of the most popular backpacking destinations in South America. Not only is it home to the Amazon Basin and the beautiful salt flats, it’s by far the cheapest country to explore.

Read on to see which are the best places to visit in Bolivia – and don’t forget to let us know your plans on Twitter or Facebook!

Death Road, Bolivia - Where to travel in Bolivia - Fabulous Travel Guide

Test your nerve on Death Road, Bolivia

1) La Paz

Travelling from Peru? Most backpackers bus it straight to the capital, La Paz.  Here you can test your nerve on Death Road, book the salt flats tour and party hard 24/7.

2) Rurrenabaque

Swim with pink dolphins in the Amazon! Book the Pampas Tour from La Paz and head north up to Rurrenabaque for a 3-day canoe trip. Highly recommended.

3) Sucre

Sucre is a pretty city to explore if you’re heading south. Fancy a giggle? Hop onboard the dinosaur bus for an unusual afternoon at Parque Cretacico. Afterwards sip coffee in one of the many sun-drenched cafes…

4) Potosi

Don't miss the 3-day salt flats tour in Bolivia

Many travellers head to Potosi to visit the cooperative mines and experience the terrible working conditions that hundreds of men are forced to endure. There’s little else to see here so if you’re not keen on claustrophobic tunnels then you might want to give this one a miss.

5) Salar de Uyuni

Unmissable! You can book the salt flats tour from La Paz, Tupiza or Uyuni itself. See pictures of the salt flats here and start planning your trip today.

6) Tupiza

If you like horse riding and want to see some beautiful scenery then Tupiza certainly delivers. Check out our photo gallery here to see why we fell in love…

Visit the world’s largest salt flats in Bolivia

[ 1 ] July 10, 2011

Planning to travel through Bolivia? Visit the world’s largest salt flats and explore the 12,106 sq km playground that attracts backpackers from all over the world.

The isolated landscape, which was formed when prehistoric lakes dried up to leave layers of salt, is a jaw-dropping sight. The flat surfaces stretch as far as the eye can see, made all the whiter by endless expanses of bright blue sky.
